    When did the smiles begin?

    This topic came up in a conversation today; When you look at old photos, most people are NOT smiling. They seem to stare glumly at the camera as if it's their last photo before their execution. When in history did people actually start SMILING for pictures and putting on the inauthentic...

    Alfred Rosenberg Diary found....

    I don't think that this topic has been posted elsewhere - I did my due diligence and searched for Rosenberg with no results. Nazi Alfred Rosenberg kept a diary from 1936 - 1944 which was lost after the Nuremberg trials. It has resurfaced in Delaware, of all places. Additonal news and details...

    The Original CAF - before it was COMMEMORATIVE!
